Dayton, OH, April 11, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- "Chico Boy: A Novel" by Gina Hooten Popp has been chosen as Medalist Winner in the Young Adult General Fiction category of the New Apple Book Awards for Excellence in Independent Publishing.
Life isn’t easy when you have as many obstacles to overcome as fourteen-year-old Chico Boy has in his life. For starters, his dad left over a year ago and he’s fallen behind in school. And even though his mother works hard at her waitressing job, she’s barely able to cover the family’s expenses. Things like new underwear and tennis shoes fall far down on the list of essentials when compared to gas, food and rent. And now to top it all off, he and his best friend Tulula think they’ve witnessed a possible murder. But take heart; not all is bad for Chico Boy. He has a great group of friends and an indomitable spirit that keeps him bouncing high on the pogo stick of life.
